4.  Carotenoids

It’s carotenoids that give plants their color. There are more than 600 different types of carotenoids, which is why there is such a wide variety of colors in our fruits and vegetables.

Studies show that women who have higher levels of carotenoids in their blood stream have a lower risk of developing breast cancer. Some of the best foods to get your carotenoids from are:

  • Tomatoes
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Bell Peppers (all colors)
  • Spinach
  • Papaya (but not from Hawaii, as these are GMO)
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Cabbage (all colors)
